Last week, the Evergreen “Sheep Club” invited members of the campus community out to visit their flock of 3 dozen sheep a few miles off-campus. February is birthing season for the sheep, and pairs of lambs followed alongside their mothers as they grazed.
“Sheep Club” is the nickname of Evergreen Students for Sustainable Animal Agriculture–a student group dedicated to hands-on education in animal agriculture. Many of the students are in the program Agriculture and Conservation in the Pacific Northwest; and as members of the club, they put their studies into practice. They visit the pasture daily to care for the flock. This year that includes bottle-feeding three baby lambs who needed extra care.
It was a beautiful day for a visit and a great day to take pictures. We’re hoping to visit again in the spring, when the club prepares for shearing. For now, enjoy the photos!
